PART G. POST-SESSION UPDATE PROCEDURE
§337.87. Post-session update procedure
A. The purpose of this code is to benefit both taxpayers and local tax collectors by
promoting uniformity in the assessment, collection, administration, and enforcement of state
and local sales and use tax and by compiling them, and making them readily available in one
place in the revised statutes.
B.(1) Therefore, beginning with the 2003 Regular Session of the Legislature, it is the
intention of the legislature that all or a portion of any Act enacted in any regular or in any
extraordinary session which has the effect of amending or enacting any provision of Title 33,
Title 47, or other title of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950, which Act is relative to, or
which Act affects, the assessment, collection, administration, and enforcement of the sales
tax of any taxing authority which is not a state-wide political subdivision, and any penalties,
interest, and other charges due which are related to such tax, shall be included within the
Uniform Local Sales Tax Code provided for in this Chapter.
(2) To that end, after considering any opinions as provided for in Subsection C of
this Section, the Louisiana State Law Institute shall place into such code all or a portion of
any such Acts enacted in such sessions which have the effect of amending or enacting any
provision of Title 33, this Title, or other title of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950
relative to, or which affect, those matters. In particular, it is the intention of the legislature
that any Act extending the time period for which a sales and/or use tax exemption, exclusion,
or other tax benefit is applicable shall be placed into such code.
C.(1) Prior to the placement of all or a portion of an Act into this code, the institute
shall provide to the following organizations for their review the Acts or portions of Acts that
it intends to place within the code:
(a) The Louisiana Society of Certified Public Accountants.
(b) The Tax Section of the Louisiana Bar Association.
(c) The Louisiana Association of Tax Administrators.
(d) The Louisiana Uniform Local Sales Tax Board.
(2) Such organizations may reply, in writing, to the institute with any opinion
concerning such placement that they believe is warranted within the time specified by the
Acts 2003, No. 73, §1, eff. July 1, 2003; Acts 2017, No. 274, §2, eff. June 16, 2017.
